You knew it had to be coming. It’s Summer and people want Jeep Wranglers. Unfortunately, after Chrysler’s Chapter 11 proceedings, new JK body-style Wranglers are tough to come by. As I look out the window at the Jeep Dealership next door, I can count exactly ZERO new Wranglers on the lot. What’s a Jeeper in need of a new Wrangler to do? In the first good news from Jeep in a while, Bloomberg.com is reporting that Chrysler is boosting 2nd-half production to fulfill demand.
“Chrysler plans to run two plants on overtime and is operating a third shift at another factory to restock dwindled inventory on dealer lots…Chrysler has scheduled overtime at its Dodge Ram truck plant in Warren, Michigan, and a plant in Toledo, Ohio, that makes the Jeep Wrangler sport-utility vehicle.”
So hold on just a little bit longer, folks. Hopefully we’ll have a whole fleet of new Wranglers heading to a dealership near you (that made the cut) faster than you can say Sergio Marchionne!
